Science and gastronomy come together in this ceramic dripper to make the optimal cup of coffee. In the 1930s, the drip cone pour-over was proven by M.I.T. scientists as being the best method for brewing coffee. Meanwhile, Japanese brand Hario, founded in 1921 with a catalogue of laboratory glass, segued from science to coffee with their 1948 syphon brewer. This ceramic dripper was released in 2005 and over one million have been sold since. The brewing cone features an angled design with spiral-ribbed walls so that the paper or cloth filter does not cling to the sides, creating ample space for air to escape and the coffee to expand as you add water. An opening at the bottom of the cone allows coffee to drip freely for a customized flavor and strength with the speed at which you pour the hot water—quickly for lighter coffee or slower for a darker brew. The durable, ceramic body retains heat to help maintain a constant temperature throughout brewing, delivering a steaming cup of coffee when the drip cycle is done.
Hand wash is recommended, but the item is suitable for the dishwasher as well. To brew your perfect cup of coffee: Place the filter inside the cone. Add medium-fine coffee grounds to the filter (10-12g, about a tablespoon, is typically good for one serving, but adjust for stronger or weaker brews). Take the boiling water off the flame, waiting a few minutes for the water to settle. Pour hot water slowly to moisten the grounds from the center outward, moving water in a circular pattern. Wait about 30 seconds. Slowly start adding more water using the same speed and swirling motion as before, making sure the water does not come into direct contact with the paper filter. Brewing time should be within 3 minutes for the freshest coffee.
Hario was founedd in 1921 to provide glassware to laboratories. In the 1940s, founder Hiromu Yasuhiro, believed that their heatproof glass would work well for the growing coffee and cafe industry in Japan, and he was right. Today, Hario remains one of the most respected producers of laboratory and coffee products. The company is run by the original founder's son, Sibata Yasuhiro.
